Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not a syndrome.

IBS is not an auto-immune disease. In fact no inflammatory bowel condition is—including crohn’s ‘disease.

IBS is not just going to go away. There is no such thing as remission. You may be able to dampen the symptoms somewhat for awhile by juggling foods.

Remember – you cannot eat your way into or out of any inflammatory bowel disease –
